Arthur and Peterborough Currents have teamed up to cover Peterborough's budget deliberations in a podcast format. We’ll be releasing podcast episodes as city council’s budget deliberations progress.

In this first episode of the series Will Pearson, Brett Throop, and Sebastian Johnston-Lindsay discuss their initial reactions to the draft budget. They also check in with Harry Kitchen, a retired Trent University economics professor with an interest in municipal finance.

Kitchen argues that of all the taxes we pay in Canada, municipal property taxes offer the most bang for your buck. He says it’s the “lowest of all the taxes you pay, and you’re getting the most services for that tax.”
